Modifying an Account String in GP

    Trying to modify a GP account string.
    When I enter the account string, I receive the following message:
    "This account is not a posting account"

    How do I determine that the account string is not a posting account and how do I change it to a posting account?

    I would open up the Unit Account Maintenance window and see if that account is a unit account. If it is the only way to make it a posting account would be to delete it (however you will not be able to do that if there is history in the account). Then recreate it as a posting account.

    What is this account used for would be a good question as to what type of account it should be.​

    Hi Peter,

    You can check the account type (ACCTTYPE) value of the account in GL00100... (see values below).
    You can also do an inner join on GL00105 so that you can make use of the account number string (ACTNUMST).

    1 = Posting Account
    2 = Unit Account
    3 = Posting Allocation Account
    4 = Unit Allocation Account

    Alternatively, you can also make use of "Accounts" SmartList.
